I'd rather it stayed, but of course be overridable by the end-user. The 
reason for this is that it's dead easy to write scripts that go boom 
when the root transform changes. That having been said, changing the 
shall to a should (so it can be "legally" overridden) might imho be a 
good idea.

Thanks a lot! I agree with your changes and will take them to the WG.
